Free mapping data will elevate flood risk knowledge For the past 17 years we have been capturing LIDAR (Light Detection & Ranging) data in England. LIDAR uses a laser to scan and map the landscape from above and is widely considered to be the best method for collecting very dense and accurate elevation data across the landscape. We use LIDAR to help the work of the Environment Agency in many ways, including creating flood models, assessing coastal change and analysing how land is used. We now have an extensive archive of aerial LIDAR data covering nearly three quarters (72%) of England – the data mainly covers flood plains, coastal zones and urban areas.

The Marauders Map I was watching Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban last night and it occurred to me that I still haven't seen a good interactive version of the Marauders Map. I had a couple of hours free this morning so I decided to give it a go. I'm not entirely happy with my Marauders Map but I thought I'd share it any way.
